The EE Times had an interview with Phil Hester, AMD's Chief Technology Officer. He talks about the future and reveals AMD is working on two brand new cores, a mobile one and another one for high-end servers.
EET: When will those microarchitectures be ready?
Hester: It's an '07-'08 discussion for both of them — in that general range. We now have core groups of 10 to 20 people doing the high-level microarchitectures, supported by others who work on performance modeling or who work with the software community on compiler technology.
